Guest Designing at The Card Concept!

I am over the moon excited to be guest designing at The Card Concept this month! My sweet friend Tracey McNeely emailed me the invitation several months ago and the day has finally arrived! I will be sharing cards in the shabby chic category.


I was inspired by everything in this photo! 
The colors, flowers, lace and typewriter. 
This is what I came up with.


I started with the little typewriter that was in one of my 6x6 paper packs. I embossed a PTI sentiment on it then added my Precious Remembrance Sweet Pea Stamp Set underscore.The decorative papers are from the same pack. I know the typewriter in the photo has silver on it, but gold was calling my name for this card. The border die I used is my favorite of the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched BordersThe gold embossed and green die cut leaves are by PTI. Trimmings found in my stash make up my flowers. The lace bow is some of the last bits of lace left from my floral shop. I might have to save what's left for sentimental reasons!! Finally, some creamy buttons. I mean, what self respecting shabby chic card doesn't have a button or two added in the mx!!

I just love the way this turned out, so feminine and romantic. Thanks for visiting and thanks again Tracey for inviting me! ~Lisa
